Retro style with high quality parts

With its two-texture leather seat and easily customizable sub-frame, aluminium tank, vintage style headlight and taillight, the XSR700 pays tribute to iconic bike designs of the past.

Outstanding 689cc inline 2-cylinder engine

What gives the new XSR700 such a special character is its class leading 689cc inline 2-cylinder engine, developed using Yamaha's 'crossplane philosophy'. With an uneven firing interval, the 270-degree crank gives a strong feeling of acceleration and great traction, and the deep linear torque ensures outstanding performance.
